Yeah, so my forum was hacked today. They took the home page and put up this you've been rick rolled video. Then they made one of those annoying boxes where you have to keep clicking 100's of time.
In the mean time he also disabled the forums too. I'm wondering, if he didn't have access to my hosting, how did this happen? How can he do this? What steps can I take to preventing this sort of thing from happening again? I know we have some hackers here. No doubt about that. If you don't want to post the information about how to protect my site on here, you can PM it to me.
Also, what can I do to get the hacker in trouble? I'm not so sure this hacker was professional as the kid admits to it. He's like 15 or 16 years old and I'm not to sure he did a clean job and may have left a trace. First step would probably be to contact my hosting company?
